Another Dance at the Congress

by Brian Cameron

22 Oct 2022

Anerley Town Hall

Game fee is £30.00

A lot of interest has been expressed by those who played and those who missed it in another run of my 2019 game, The Dancing Congress. The game is about the Congress of Vienna which met in 1814-15 to map out Europe following the defeat of Napoleon.

The player teams represent the countries attending, each with their own agenda for regaining territory lost/gaining new territory while ensuring that no power is in a position to dominate Europe.

There are no military operations in the game: this is a meeting of statesmen and women to negotiate a settlement through a mixture of open, honest exchanges and dodgy deals made in back rooms.

By Other Means

Anerley Methodist Church Hall

Game fee is £35.00

By Other Means is a space opera megagame of high-level diplomacy, negotiation and conflict loosely inspired by the Peace of Westphalia. Following decades of debilitating war, the major powers of the galaxy must find a workable peace, without losing too much of what each has gained.
Megagame Makers is a group of friends. We do this as a hobby because we love Megagames and want to make our games available to a wide community. Because it's a hobby, it does not mean that we have lower standards. We do everything to the highest standard we can and, given the depth of skills and experience in Megagames, that is a very high standard.

To be a Megagame Maker, each of us needs to be active in running our group. That means that we are required to have run at least one Megagame and to have a game on the Megagame calendar or have run a Megagame in the last five years. Contributing actively could also involve activity to do with the administration of the group.

At the moment, there are 12 Megagame Makers. A brief introduction to each of us, along with downloads that person has made available, can be obtained through the list here.
